Really shortened the story up,  but by chance,  I happened to stumble on this page.  The nugget looked familier, the detector was the same, the name matched, and it took me about 15 seconds to connect the dots and realize it was MY NUGGET! Minelab didnt tell me they published it,  but I thought it was really super cool!!

Thank you @BMc,  it was a fun surprise for sure.  Finding the gold, then seeing it in the GPAA magazine.  @boulder dash...  It was pure luck,  im no expert by any stretch of the imagination.

But you know what they say . . .  it's better to be lucky than good, so either way you're a winner!

Luck surely has something to do with it. But you have to meet luck half way for gold like that. It has a whole lot to do with persistence and being on the right spot. You just don't get over gold like that just by luck!

It is a nice nugget and a great honor to be recognized like that!

Sure thing @adam! I will even use a fresh Sharpie! @Desertpilot,  Hell no,  I wish.  But there are way better prospectors out there who would deserve it more than me... aka, Adam, Boulder Dash, Bill, etc... .  I am a tad obsessed with Minelab.  That Logo is custom that I had printed and is on the back of my truck window and that license plate is valid too!!

@Morlock,  CCP.  Inside joke with my dad.  He has literally forgotten to grab the pick from the house about 3 times, and we ended up having to drive into town and grab one.  Its his initials,  to help him remember haha.

You need to change that CCP to CRS (Can't Remember $h!t) it's an affliction we all have to some degree  and gets worse as we get older, in my case more than others!! :89:
